image for Lost Shakespeare Play a Hit
Ancient Shakespeare Play Found

A play by English Bard, William Shakespeare, found recently in an attic in Lesser Crumble, has become a hit sensation.

The person who found the play, John Cribb, has made a fortune over the rights he has on the manuscript which he has allowed Hollywood to turn into a blockbuster film.

'This is Shakespeare at his best' commented critic Fanny Knowall 'he inspires us with his tragi-comic wit.' The play is about a ghost who takes over the monarch of an ancient country resembling auld Scotland. There are deaths galore and great fun with a fat drunk half brother of the King who screws his way through several willing Dollybirds.

Eventually the King dies of over exertion and his half brother tries to take over the Crown, but the King's widow knifes the drunkard fool and declares herself the Queen. At this the Ghost decides that women cannot rule in the kingdom because of the death of civilisation that would result.

Mildred Thatch takes on the Ghost and in a struggle of epic proportions the Ghost is expunged from the world and Thatch takes over the throne for thirty years of total misery, before she is deposed after riots in the streets.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
